These Peanut Butter Cookies are thick, chewy, and so, so soft. This recipe is a copycat of Disneyland's peanut butter cookies, which are my all-time favorite. And these cookies are just as good as the real thing!
Is there a better smell than Main Street USA at Disneyland? I have heard rumors that they pump delicious “smells” into the park, just to make your mouth salivate . . . I don’t know if it’s true or not, but the smells get me every time! One of my favorite places to visit is Pooh Corner Bakery in Disneyland. Their cookies are seriously to die for – I love the Snickerdoodle cookies and these Peanut Butter ones are a close second!

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
These peanut butter cookies are thick, chewy, and so, so soft (which is how a bakery cookie should be!). The cookies at Disneyland have big peanut butter chunks in them, but I wasn’t able to find any so I went with regular peanut butter chips, which still turned out delicious!
I love the edge on these cookies! Most peanut butter cookies have a criss-cross design on top that you make with a fork, but to make these more like Disneyland’s cookies we rolled them in sugar and flattened them with a drinking glass to give them that rough edge.
Why Are My Peanut Butter Cookies Dry/Crumbly?
Cookie dough can be a little fickle when it comes to altitude, so if you feel like your dough is a little too dry or crumbly you can add a little milk until you reach your desired consistency.
